Director Statement

Don't Say Macbeth is a piece about aspirations and how curses can lead our lives. It came from a place in my life where I thought I had to give up the things I was passionate about because of choices others made and expected me to live up to. But more than that, I just think the story of how the Scottish curse came to be is really intriguing.
